LibriVox recording of Birds in the Calendar, by Frederick G. Aflalo. Read by Ruth Golding.
Delightful sketches of British wild birds - a bird for every month of the year from the pheasant in January to the robin in December. This collection of articles, reprinted in book form from the periodical The Outlook, is full of fascinating information about bird behaviour and habitat, as well as many interesting anecdotes.
Out of date in some respects, particularly in its reference to the (now illegal) collecting of birds' eggs, this book brings home forcefully how the populations of some British wild birds have declined since it was written. (Summary by Ruth Golding)
